Power conservation is one of the most critical issues in target tracking since the wireless sensor nodes once deployed in the sensor network. An important factor affecting the network lifetime and missing ratio is the number of nodes participating in target tracking. Also, the amount of energy used for target tracking in the network is proportional to the number of participating sensor nodes. Therefore, to perform continuous tracking without losing target, it might have a minimal set of sensor nodes. Thus, in this paper, we propose the mobility adaptive target tracking scheme which is able to reduce the number of sensor nodes needed for target tracking and each node independently decides whether to participate or not. Experimental results verify that our scheme reduces the energy consumption and gets a more low missing ratio.
